I wouldn't worry. I think everyone who's gotten decisions have been priority track.

Pretty sure me and one other dude are the only ones to get priority reserved. I must have messed something up on my app. If your numbers beat one of their medians you'll probably get in.

Damn, what are your stats? Any prior offenses? Still in UG?

I'm a Duke splitter -- a hair above 25th gpa but also above 75th LSAT.

3.5 171, no criminal offenses but had an incident in the first semester of my freshman year. Funny, I got a 4.0 that semster.

2 years out of UG. Really made me think about overhauling my app as much as possible before applying to other schools.

Edit: Your stats are better than mine, I think you are in for sure.

Stats:
171~173
3.85+

Why Duke:
None but did send a nice email asking Dean Hoye for PT. Maybe that helped?

Not much better stats. A few hundredths of a GPA point and one LSAT point. How did you feel about your PS? Did you do a "Why Duke"?

Thanks for the info, by the way. If you got PR'd, I'm sure you'll get in RD.

I didn't like my PS, but i'm really critical and I figured it's a numbers game anyways. I'm seriously considering rewriting one this weekend.

Yes, wrote a why Duke. Really, since I'm a splitter, this wouldn't be worrying me if I didn't see that at least 90 percent of ppl from the PT program get accepted.

Not that I should be an indicator or anything, but I've been under review for close to a month and still nothing.
